 Ah, but when they're good enough, you won't even know you're boffing a machine!  Blade Runner was just set 20 years too early.
 If it will allow me to pay anonymously, as is currently possible with existing iTunes store, it might even get me onboard.  Didn't Apple just add the capability to directly drop cash on your iTunes account?  Yes, it's here: http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/181412/first-look-using-passbook-at-an-apple-store-to-buy-itunes-app-store-credit If whatever new-fangled scheme revealed tomorrow requires a tie-in with a bank-issued credit card, I have no interest (except as an AAPL...
  Ha!  I called it, right on the button:Our brains are far more capable than people think.  Well, certainly for some people that's obviously not true, but I know you are perfectly capable of remembering a single timestamp (non-complex data) in your head for an hour or two without breaking a sweat.  But that's okay, you can keep thinking this.  Heck, if you're right, and you really are that forgetful, our conversation here is pointless, because it will be forgotten by...
 My brain?  Thanks a lot!  Screw the "General Purpose".  I think we all know what kind of robots will be the holy grail when they can look and act humanoid.  Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, I hope Apple enters this field.  They would likely be the best at creating something attractive and stylish, not just functional!
 "Time saver"?  To me, that feels like you spent extra time doing something you didn't need to do at all.  My method?  I simply note what time it is, as or before I get out of the car.  Zero seconds taken, and the added benefit of engaging my brain!   Are we really to the point in human evolution where we need to rely on phones and centralized services to remember when our parking expires?  Seriously, this is much bigger than parking meters, it feels like just one of many...
 So sad, but true.  Most people are indeed stupid enough to think that it'll never happen to them. You may not be able to give people common sense, but you can change people's behavior -- at least around the edges.  I've spent the better part of the last decade "educating" people (and lots of young people) about this stuff.  The results vary a lot, but almost everyone I've spent appreciable time around has reduced their digital/online footprint to some extent.  Anything...
 iWallet sounds way too much like google's service. Maybe iPay?  Short and sweet.
 The issue is indeed confusion between public and private.  What people don't understand, and why we keep seeing stuff like this and will likely continue to see stuff like this in the future, is that as soon as any pictures or video leave your control, they are no longer private!  It's as simple as that! Combine that with the fact that people don't understand when you take a picture or video with a cell phone (or rather, any internet-connected device), it may not even be...
  ^ This. ^ Apple could get a tiny tick of incremental revenue, but they might even choose to skip that part, because more importantly they'll get tons of iPhone sales (upgrades).  Depending on specifics, this could be very appealing to the existing hundreds of millions of users of older iPhones.  You know, everyone who has been waiting for some significant reason to upgrade. Think about Samsung and other manufacturers that don't own their entire ecosystem.  How will their...
 LOL!
